Life with little ones is busy. There is rarely a dull moment. It passes so quickly. So quickly. Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed by the “little” things…laundry, diapers, sweeping the floor for the fourteenth time today, that I worry I am going to miss out on the bigger picture. Time spent reading on the couch, playing with my kids, really listening to all they have to say. I worry I might miss the moments that make it all worth it.
Valentines Day always reminds me that I should cherish those things that really matter. No one will remember that I never swept after their lunch…but they might remember that I was too busy to play or listen. I am not saying I should let my house go, I’m a bit of a clean freak, but I can put a daily effort and focus on where my priorities should be.
- Others (family, friends. those in need…)
I hope to spend Valentines Day enjoying the ones I love, and maybe I’ll only sweep twice!
